Teachers complain about grading policy

"I got a 50% for skipping class!"

In an effort to record as accurate GPA's as possible, Pittsburgh schools hand out a grade of 50% for any missing or incomplete work. So basically, 0%=50%. You can see why some of the lesser motivated students are perfectly content with that score. I am glad we are teaching kids that by not trying at all, it's pretty much like giving half your effort. That little life skill will come in handy when they enter the job market, and are quickly fired for poor work performace.
